Our 2nd Summer Meeting took place at Basildon Golf Club in mid July. After rain and difficult conditions at the 2 previous meetings this year the ladies were treated to a warm and sunny day for their afternoon round. The course was in good condition and the greens were superb. Some of the ladies found the tree lined fairways a little troublesome, but others excelled and returned great scores. A total of 70 ladies from 29 different clubs across Essex played in the 4BBB competition off full handicap. Many of the prizes were decided on count back. 13 pairs scored 40 or more points and 3 pairs scored 43 points. As Dot Greaves, President of the Society was unable to attend, Vice President Jo Davies and Carol Bell Secretary presented the prizes. In 3rd place with 44 points ocb were Helen Williams (Burnham) & Viggi Thompson (Forrester Park). In 2nd place also on 44 points were Pam Stevens (Gosfield Lake) & Mary Ellen Lewis (Burnham). The overall winners of the competition and the Joyce Layland Trophy were Sue Brittan (Chelmsford) and Gill Stallard (Brentwood). Thank you to Basildon for hosting the event and all the staff on the day.
The ladies also had a welcome spectator on the day Basildon’s friendly fox.
